Politicians rely on fundraising in order to be successful. Today, more and more politicians are using t-shirt fundraising to raise support for various causes.
Some politicians use t-shirt fundraising to get elected into office, for example, while other politicians use it so spread support for a particular cause or proposed bill.
Whatever the reason for your political fundraiser may be, BonfireFunds.com can help. Bonfire uses a unique risk-free fundraising system and famously soft t-shirts to make sure your fundraiser is as successful as possible. It takes only minutes to setup a fundraiser and there’s no limit to how much money you can raise.
Here are just a few of the unique advantages that Bonfire can offer your political fundraiser:
Raise visible support for political causes with stylish, comfortable t-shirts
Charities all over the world hand out t-shirts to contributors. Unfortunately, most people never wear these t-shirts because they’re too uncomfortable or awkward-fitting. We believe that’s a missed opportunity: by giving your contributors a t-shirt they actually want to wear, you’re accomplishing two goals. First, you’re raising funds from t-shirt sales, and second, you’re spreading visible support for your cause.
After your t-shirts are shipped to your contributors, they’ll actually want to wear them. We make it easy to create a shirt that reflects the message of your political campaign while also being as stylish and aesthetically pleasing as possible. In addition to featuring quality prints, our shirts use top-quality fabric that is soft on the skin. They also feature a modern-fitted design that looks good in any size.
The end result is that you raise more money for your political campaign while also spreading visible support for a cause.
Our online t-shirt fundraising platform is changing the way politicians approach fundraising. The most valuable advantage of Bonfire t-shirt fundraising is that it’s risk-free: your political fundraising campaign can either make lots of money or make no money at all. There’s no way for you to lose money on your fundraiser because we don’t charge you anything.
That’s right: there are no hidden fees or charges on your Bonfire fundraiser. Instead, we give 100% of t-shirt proceeds directly to you. Once your fund ends and you’ve reached your minimum shirt sales goal, we’ll print and mail those t-shirts directly to all of your contributors and you will have immediate access to your proceeds through our payment provider, WePay.
Incredibly easy to setup
Being a politician is a busy job. You can’t afford to take several days out of your job to plan a political fundraiser. That’s why we’ve designed our fundraising setup process to be as easy as possible. It’s so easy that it takes only a few minutes to go from start to finish.
All you need to do is create a shirt design, set your selling price - and that's it! In your fundraising description, you’ll also want to explain to potential contributors why they should donate to your campaign. What will the money be used for? Why should they care about your political cause? The more detailed you are, the higher chance you have of attracting political support.
After doing that, you’re ready to spread and share your political fundraising campaign with the world. Political fundraising doesn’t get much easier than that.
Spread and share your campaign and watch contributions pour in
Most people have a strong opinion about politics. People who have strong opinions about politics like to contribute to political campaigns that represent their opinions.
We’ve made it easy to reach out to these people and raise support for your cause. After launching your fundraiser, we give you a simple URL that looks like this: http://www.bonfirefunds.com/Your_Political_Fundraiser. It’s easy to spread and share that URL on Twitter, Facebook, online forums, and anywhere else you think you can gain political support for your cause.
Raise funds for all different types of political campaigns
Political campaigns come in all different varieties. Maybe you’re trying to get elected for the very first time, or maybe you’re trying to spearhead a political movement or get a bill signed.
Whatever your political aspirations may be, Bonfire is here to help.
More Political Fundraising Ideas
Fundraising is an integral part of political campaigning. Today’s politicians are getting more and more creative when it comes to fundraising. Looking for a few ideas to launch your political fundraiser? Here are some of the most popular fundraising campaigns around today:
Super events: Today’s biggest politicians use super fundraising events to raise a lot of money in a short period of time. Super fundraising events may be reserved for only the highest political levels, but you can still borrow some of their ideas to make your fundraising event a success. Launch a dinner and charge a fee per plate. Hire some entertainment, a band, a celebrity, and anything else to keep the crowd happy. Launch an auction after dinner and host some casino games in the event venue. Instead of hosting 10 fundraising events throughout the year, you can focus your energy into one or two super political events.
Family sports events: Politicians, at their best, support the local community. Families are an integral part of any local community. To show your commitment to the community, sponsor a family sports event. Consider a kids potato sack race, for example, or a fun run. Ask local businesses for support and sponsorship during the event or charge teams an entry fee.
Ask local businesses and your network: Political fundraising is about building a network of like-minded people. These people can make or break your campaign. If you’re preparing for a long political career, there’s no better time to start building political relationships than now. Reach out to local business leaders and expand your support network. Ask for long-term fundraising commitments on a quarterly or annual basis.
Something-a-thons: ‘Something’-a-thons have been used by charities for years. There are dance-a-thons, read-a-thons, telethons, and all sorts of other fundraising campaigns that end in ‘a-thon’. Ask your supporters to pledge and participate in your event to gather as many donations as possible.
